Did I mention yesterday the lady we lanced and got a gusher? Here is a picture of the prep work getting her ready. She was feeling much better when we left with the ACE bandage for pressure, and for her vericose veins as well after the bleeding and seepage stopped. Oh, she was probably happy getting rid of the nasty pus filled sore on her leg as well. Even after all the mess with the squirting blood, which in a rural setting can be somewhat disheartening...she was very thankful when we left.
Also last night just so happened a little boy showed up with puncture wounds from a dog. It was a long odd story of sorts, but he was not hurt too awfully bad all things conidered, and they at least came when we had a group here that could actually help him.
The groups staying behind to work at the clinic continue to make big strides in comfort, and usability of the man cave and mission house. They may not make for great blog stories (even though I think so) but man they are making a big impact at the same time as these brigades, just in a different setting.
